Student Support


Become a promostudent

Would you like to earn extra money on the side? Then sign up as an Avans promostudent and earn €10 per hour.

Discover your talents

Avans has promostudents working at almost every event. Think of Open Days, Open Evenings or events organized by your own academy. As a promo student, you will meet many fellow students, also from other courses.

Whether you prefer promotional activities for your own academy or information activities at secondary schools in the region, you can choose yourself which activities you sign up for. You can also choose activities that help you grow, for instance to build up more self-confidence in presenting. By taking on different assignments, you gain experience that will be useful in your future.

Check if you need a working permit

If you are a non-Dutch national, please check whether you need to obtain a work permit. You must do this before submitting the registration form. Avans cannot help you get a work permit as you will not be employed by Avans. Therefore make sure to check if you are allowed to work in the Netherlands as it can have consequences for your residency. Information on this is available from the Working while studying page.

Sign up

To become a promo student, all you have to do is fill in the digital application form. Also indicate on this form what kind of work you would like to do.

Activities & events

You will receive an e-mail as soon as we need promostudents for an event or assignment. If you would like to work, you can respond to the events by e-mail. In most cases, the first one who responds will get to work at the events.

If you are assigned to an event, you will receive an e-mail from the organizer. They will tell you where and when you are expected. You can also contact the organizer for other questions about the event.

Working as a promostudent for DMCS (Marketing, Communication & Student Affairs) is Avans wide, meaning you are not working for your own academy. This means that you do not work for credits or ambassador hours. If you work on assignment for DMCS and would like to get credits for this, please discuss this with your student counsellor/academy. Please note: as a promostudent, you are not employed by Avans. You will therefore also not receive an annual statement or pay slips.


To receive your compensation, you declare the hours you have worked. You do this in a digital declaration system. After the assignment you will receive an e-mail with a link to this system. If you do not receive an e-mail, please contact the organizer of the event. Once you have completed the form, you will automatically receive a copy of your declaration. If you have any questions about your payment, please send an email to
